Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Horns?

I felt the same way, and the 60's triumph of the guitar over the other instruments, always made me suspicious of horns in "rock" . It was when I started to listening to 50's rock, and R&B, that I got it . This is ,of course, was what the Rolling Stones are drawing from on Exile ( "Rip this Joint" is a clear tip of the hat to Little Richard ).
As for the Dead, Branford, fit in the best, because he could play all the areas the Dead played . He really got Jerry jacked up .
